Going into this fight, both the welterweights made weight successfully and a few hours after the official weigh-ins, both Masvidal and Gilbert Burns stepped on the scales for the ceremonial weigh-ins. During the ceremonial weigh-ins, Jorge Masvidal surprised all the fans by bringing his children along with him to the stage.

It is needless to say that Gamebred bringing his children onto the stage at the ceremonial weigh-ins was a heartwarming moment. However, Masvidal’s decision to bring kids had mixed reactions from fight fans on social media. Because several fans have trolled the BMF by saying that Jorge is doing this because he knows it is his last UFC fight.

Regardless of the trolling or support from fans, it was quite a rare moment as the former title challenger likes to keep his personal life away from the social media spotlight.
